Your local neighborhood water heater source

You may have been wondering, ”What parts are actually in a water heater?” Gas water heaters and electric water heaters are very similar. Electric models use two heating elements to heat water while a gas model has a gas burner at the bottom with the vent pipe running up through the middle of the tank. Both types of water heaters have: glass-lined steel tank that holds the hot water; environmentally friendly insulation surrounding the tank; a dip tube to let cold water into the tank; thermostat to control water temperature; drain valve that allows you to empty water from the tank; temperature pressure relief valve and an anode rod (helps to keep the tank from corroding).

Another question you may ask is "how do I choose a water heater?" What you need to know are things like: is the heater gas or electric; is the heater for a home or mobile home; what is the height and diameter of your current water heater, how many people live in your home, do you have high demand for extra hot water like a whirlpool or over-sized soaking tub or a number of teenagers living in your home and length of warranty you desire.

Warm Rain products also put a lot of valuable extras into every unit they manufacture. Warm Rain walls have built-in reinforcement for the shower door or curtain rod; built in front apron support and they are hand rolled for exceptional strength and durability.

Warm Rain products also come in a variety, of one piece sizes and break down units, from single stall showers, four foot showers to full size tub/shower units. When it comes time to build your new home or remodel your existing home order the very best...Warm Rain.
